- Wedding: April 2015
So, as some of you bees know…my FI (wow, still makes me warm inside) was working on a “project”. I was very suspicious but he didn’t let me know anything and I mean nothing!
Yesterday FI had the day off and I had to work. As we parted, I asked him where we would meet after I got done with work. “Apartment?” I said. He told me he’d like to meet me somewhere else and wouldn’t tell me where exactly. I remember saying, “WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME?” Haha.
I drive myself nuts all day at work. He wanted me to meet him where we first met, which was The Spectrum (for those of you in the Philly area). It’s now a parking lot but we still consider it special. I was super suspicious at this point and was texting my best friend worrying. She told me it would be romantic regardless and not to worry.
After work, I hoof it over (I’m about a mile away from the stadiums from work) and I see him in the lot. I couldn’t imagine what there was to see there, but I went along with it. He had video glasses on: FIRST FLAG. He got them last year and he loves to tape with them on. He had a hammer in his hand and when we met up, he gave me a geode. We love rocks and breaking geodes, so I figure he just hid something cool inside. He tells me to break it open, so we spend about 20 minutes trying to break it because it was joint compound outside over a tennis ball over a container!
Poor FI starts to panic and says, “I hope it didn’t break.” He gets it out of the container and hides it in his hand. I start to panic. I definitely panicked when he said, “You know I love you, right?” I said yes, of course I know. He tells me all sorts of stuff I don’t remember because in his hand was a beautiful sapphire and diamond ring and my brain shut down.
He got on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. Waterworks and I hugged him about a million times.
tl;dr: FI surprised me where we first met and made me break open a geode which is awesome.
Apparently, all of his family knew and so did his best friend. Even my mom knew! Grrrrrr, no one let me in on the secret!
He told me he had worked on making his own “geode” for quite some time and he had the ring for over a month!
Excuse us, we were cold and I was trying not to cry.
Right after he proposed.
My precious. 6mm x 4mm (half a carat?) of sapphires. 1/5 carat tw of diamonds. Not too big and not too small for me! Sapphires are my birthstone and I’ve always longed for a sapphire ring. I told him not to get me one because they’re very expensive. He lied!
LOL. I asked him before uploading this. I swear he’s so handsome. He was just drunk and wanted to show me the ring fits NONE of his fingers.
🙂 Thanks for reading, and happy new year! Thanks also for all of the support I got for you bees. 🙂
